ARB reckon their Winch bar for 80LC is not air bag compliant and was told TJM's is. Do you guys know if that's the case? Is there any way around the prolem?
Are you able to mount a plate across the front for the Winch & use a normal air bag compatible bull bar with a hole cut in? Cheers

Ummmm, as far as using a normal bar for winching DEFINATELY NOT!!!! sorry :(

Winch bars are made to distribute load (up tp 12,000lb) across the chassis, and not distort or twist the chassis rails. You can do (and I've seen it done on a Nissan) bid damage winching of a non- winch bar.

As far as ARB bar being non air bag comliant, then check with some other manfacturers. Modern cars use decelleration sensors, so the bar is not a great problem. If your car uses crush cans, then its a prob!

You can fabricate a winch cradle to locate behind the bar that does not allow winching stress to transmit to the bar, however, if you have air-bags fitted then you do need to use the correct winch bar, which has ADR compliance for air-bag deployment.
